My Problem

Broken

My Fix

Not bad

My Advice

I removed the glass with a hobby heat gun. The glass also broke the antenna. After removing the glass, I took the screw out that hold the antenna and pulled up the wire very easy. I cut the wire to the antenna about 1 inch from the iPad . I then put heat shrink on the wire before I solider the new antenna on to the old wire. Then I used the heat gun and on the heat shrink. I reinstalled the antenna with the screws,reinstalled the glass and ribbon tape as they said. Works great,about 20 minutes

My Problem

shattered glass and needed new antenna

My Fix

removing the broken glass was the biggest hurdle

My Advice

i forgot to check ifixit before ordering the replacement glass, so i had to order the adhesive and antenna later from ifixit - would have been better to get the whole kit from here!

My Problem

I shattered the screen on my iPad 2. In the removal of the front panel I tore the wifi antenna. I ordered the antenna and follower the guide to complete the repair.

My Fix

The guide is good, leaving little to the imagination. I had trouble with getting the SIM card out at the start of the process. I was using a paper clip, not the tool. Later in the process I was able to remove the card by removing the clip that keeps the card in place. It is held by a single screw just above the SIM card bracket.

My Advice

Be very careful with the digitizer removal. I thought I was, but I still tore the wifi antenna. To save time consider getting a front panel and an antenna at the same time. It will save you a week. If you can't get the SIM card out at the start of the sequence you can still do it later.

My Problem

Replacing broken front panel digitizer ,

My Fix

Well everything goes well , ifixit step by step tutorial is easy to follow , best part is every steps goes with picture , my repair goes well , at start when I almost done removing the broken digitizer. But in my rush and I damage the wifi cable.

My Advice

My advice is not to rush ! Follow what the manual and expert say.

My Problem

Ipad 2 fell of a table and impacted on the upper right corner causing large spider cracks in the front display but was otherwise still usable.

My Fix

Prepare for a long haul if you have lots of small cracks on the right side where you start the removal process. Total time was about 4.5 hours to soften all the adhesive and pick out the individual shards. Even with taping the display I found the plastic picks would get hung up on each crack. After getting the display off everything was relatively easy.

My Advice

Get the Bluetooth/Wi-Fi Antenna if it is your first time doing this repair. You most likely will damage it without knowing it.

My Problem

In the process of replacing a malfunctioning digitizer screen on my iPad, I was not careful enough and broke the cable of the Wifi antenna while trying to remove the screen. I needed to fix it and I was sure that iFixit would have the repair guide. Sure it did.

My Fix

iFixit repair guide does the repair in 55 steps, which seemed to me a daunting task. Before starting the repair I wanted to have the repair guide at hand, but by mistake, instead of finding it at iFixit website, I searched for it on YouTube. I found a repair guide which I thought was of iFixit (it wasn't), does the same repair with much less steps, essentially, only removing very few components. The repair was fast and simple, it went well, the new WIFI antenna purchased from iFixit works perfectly.

My Advice

I will be eternally grateful to iFixit, for posting so many very useful and educative videos and tutorials. Using iFixit guides I have done several repairs, like replacing the LCD screen of my MacBook Pro, replacing twice the digitizer screen of my iPad2, mounting a second HDD on my MacBook Pro. However, the Wifi antenna repair guide, in my opinion is too long and complex, essentially proposing to remove all components from an iPad, when there is a much simpler way of doing it.

Perhaps, it would be a good idea to update this tutorial.

My Problem

Had the ipad 2 digitizer replaced a year or so ago at a shopping mall outfit. It worked but the new digitizer had some little annoying streaks and in time became detached. So instead of having redone by some one else, decided to do it myself.

My Fix

The repair went really well, even though the digitizer was already partially coming off, it still needed a good heat up to detach the remainder. The wifi antenna was damaged, and it seems to have been done by the previous repair. So in hind-site, I should have ordered the antenna at the same time I ordered the new digitizer, it is cheap enough, even if you don't need to use it. Clean up is important and take your time doing it, but reassembly goes together really fast. In fact the hardest job was cleaning the lcd screen from any fingerprints or smudges.

Once that was done it just closes up and thats it, done. I was sorely tempted to replace the batteries at he same time, but am quite confident that its something that can be done later when its really needed. Great suppliers of replacement parts and info on how to get the repair done.

My Advice

For the removal of any smears, smudges or finger prints, I found denatured alcohol diluted with water and applied with spectacle cloth to do the trick nicely and then all it needed was a gentle wipe with a dry spec cloth to polish off any residue. The denatured alcohol was also great for removing any remaining adhesive from the frame.

My Problem

The wifi cable was severed when I removed the cracked screen.

My Fix

It started out as a simple cracked glass repair job! ( insert laughter here)

So I got the glass off ok , cleaned up the frame a bit and installed the new glass . I pushed power and nothing ... Dam , so I don't quit I plugged in the usb power and yes ! It came on . But no wifi .. Shoot ok I pull it apart and sure enough the wifi cable was damaged . I ordrerd new one and read all the how too . I found a good one on you tube (sorry i fixit ). Was a lot quicker and I didn't have to remove the mobo ! Nice . Any way I installed the new wifi and it's working great . Next up the power button .

My Advice

Funny thing is , I found an icloud locked iPad 2 in perfect condition that I was gonna just swap out the mobo with mine , but that would have been too easy and I wouldn't have learned a new skill ;-)

My Problem

After cutting the wifi antenna wire while removing the broken ipad screen, I learned that this happens to almost every first time repairer.

My Fix

The connector is the size of the head of a pin, so be prepared for some frustration. Once connected, it was just a matter of lining up the mounting holes with the holes in the iPad and getting the screws in place. That wasn't bad since the screwdriver was magnetized.

My Advice

It will happen to you, so wherever you order the screen (aka digitizer) from, go ahead and spring for the wifi antenna. The iFixit antenna actually improved performance over the original antenna, but I wouldn't replace the original antenna just for that.

My Problem

Knicked the antenna while replacing the front panel.

My Fix

Really well got it all buttoned up and it works fine. Interested in seeing how it works in the long term.

My Advice

Be careful with the screw in cord holder it comes off easily and I had to tape it on before I mounted the antenna.
